What made you laugh this week?
I had dinner at a friends on Sunday and it turned into a mini debate about women who wash their plates up after dinner the first time they are invited round… The men surprisingly all agreed that it was a deal breaker if she did do the dishes that would never be invited back again. You had to be there, but the passion and frustration some guys displayed while explained previous experiences had us ladies in hysterics.
